WHEN WILL WE RETURN TO OUR REGULAR SCHEDULE?
We are continuing to watch the number of new cases closely and will let you know when we are able to safely resume in-person worship services. Our weekly online services will continue.
GIVE TO FELLOWSHIP WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE WITH GIVEPLUS+
Our EFT provider, Vanco, provides a smartphone app, Give+, to enable anyone to donate at anytime to Fellowship. It makes it easy to give instantaneously for a regular gift, a recurring gift, or a special occasion gift. Thank you for your faithful stewardship!
If you want to make changes in your EFT for 2021 or begin a EFT, please contact Tracy Farel.
We now have a blessing box on our property, thanks to HelpColumbus, a group that supports individuals and families recently impacted by the events of COVID-19. A blessing box houses non-perishable items like food, baby supplies, etc. If you or someone you know are in need of these items, feel free to stop by the church. You may also place donations in the blessing box.
DRIVE THRU COMMUNION PICK-UP
As we discussed at the congregation meeting, we will begin celebrating communion during our worship services beginning in December on the first and third Sundays of the month (and Christmas). On Sunday, November 29, you will be able to drive by the entrance of the church from 10:45 -11:45 a.m. to pick up a baggie of communion sets for your family for the next two months. If you are not able to come on that day, please let me know so we can make other arrangements or I can bring them to your home (firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-725-4930).
Pastor Robin is starting to meet with people at the church (one on one or one family at a time) for pastoral care and communion, and dropping off communion kits at members' houses. If you are interested in this, please contact Pastor Robin so we can set something up.

WORSHIP SERVERS NEEDED
If you are able to help out at our 10:00 a.m. worship service when we resume in-person worship, please let either Tracy Farel or Pastor Robin know.
DO YOU ORDER FROM AMAZON?
If so, then try Amazon Smile to support Fellowship Lutheran Church! First, go to Amazon Smile and choose Fellowship Lutheran Church Columbus, OH as your charity. Then, shop as usual and Fellowship will receive a percentage of your purchase. It’s that easy!
KROGER PLUS COMMUNITY AWARDS
If you would like to register your Kroger card for the Community Rewards Program, please contact Pastor Robin or the church office.
IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE A HOME VISIT BY PASTOR ROBIN
Please let Pastor Robin or Tracy know so we can get one scheduled. It does not need to be a pastoral emergency...just an opportunity to get to know you better.
WHEN LEAVING THE CHURCH
Please be sure to lock the doors, turn the coffee pot off, and turn off the lights when you leave the church! Thanks!
